's national security. last july, she appeared on cnn. >> first off, women have been in combat for decades. i am not seeing that women do not have a role in combat. we do not fight a conventional enemy. there is not a front line anymore. what i am proposing is women in the infantry. >> essentially, what is the problem with women in the infantry? if ohlman can get through training, why can she not serve alongside fellow infantryman? >> it is an issue purses' cost and benefit. the cost will outweigh the benefit. it will not help the individual or the institution. we are a war footing institution. combat readiness is going to be affected by this. >> i read the piece that you wrote recently. it was very expensive. it was called "get over it, we are not all created equal." i know that you created the it -- the image of yourself, your abilities, the way he trained, the way you rank, and what it was like when you're on the front lines and how you managed. in a very short version, can you tell our viewers what went through and why you began to have this epiphany about yourself as a combat soldier and

newses and cnns and the bbcs and so i think that that's interesting thing. i don't know how many people are going to visit it but it would if people visit it will be interesting to see how that plays out time warner has said it is canceling contract with current tv and, therefore, will not carry al jazeera. they say that's a commercial rather than a political decision and that they will keep, quote, an open mind. jon? >> jon: current tv founder al gore seems pretty happy about this. >> his slice of that reported $500 million selling price is likely to be pretty large as one of the co-founders. he always -- he also seems to agree with al jazeera's view. he said, for instance, curement tv goals to give voice though those who are not typically geraldo to. speak truth to power to. provide independent and diverse points of view and to tell the stories that no one else is telling. al jazeera, like current, believes that facts and truth lead to a better understanding of the world around us. in a few months, one imagines that millions of americans will be able to decide for themselves whether t

on either msnbc or cnn and think what they're supposed to be, dealing with ahmadinejad or iran and yet, they're like getting into petty squabbles with networks. >> remember what the president said. he said there are lots of republicans who really would want to work with democrats, but they're just afraid of being punished by fox. well, the fact is that there's a lot of significant difference between republicans and democrats on the hill right now. fox news has nothing to do with it. they have significantly different visions of how much money the government should spend and how much it should tax. >> of course, there is a stion,s are more inclined to compromise and i've heard senator harry reid's feet to the fire on this whole budget business because unless he puts a budget on the table, there can't begin to be a discussion to compromise. so, you know, he should call up senator harry reid and tell him to start compromising. >> the president said that for a long time. that he and the democrats are more willing to compromise than the republicans, but somehow the compromise doesn't happen. >> an

that members of a party wouldn't go on ms-nbc or here or cnn. if you think they are supposed to be dealing with ahmadinejad of iran but they are squabbling with the networks. >> he said, there are lots of republicans who would work with the democrats, but they are afraid of being punished by fox. there is a lot of significant difference between the republicans and the democrats on the hill. fox news has nothing to do with this. they have significantly different visions of how much government -- money the government should spend and how much it should tax. >> of course, there is the suggestion in the article that the democrats are more inclined to compromise. of course, i have held senator harry reid's fight to the fire on the budget business because unless he puts a budget on the table, there can't begin to be a discussion to compromise. so, you know -- he should call up senator reid and tell him to start compromising. >> the president has said that for a long time, said that he and the democrats are more willing to compromise, but somehow, the compromise doesn't happen. >> as they say, ne

directly to northwestern people. >> let's take a look at a new cnn time orc poll that talks about that stricter gun control laws and what the temperature is. 55% favor districter gun control laws. and then if we look back just a little bit further to "the washington post," abc poll, they talk about armed guards in schools. this is where the dichotomy in school -- the poll shows that 55% support having armed guards in school whereas 52% oppose that. and karen, i want to start with you on this one. because for the people on the left who are proud to say they support second amendment rights, we look at that contrast there where people want to see districter gun control laws, but they also think that there is a legitimate discussion to be had about having armed guards at school. >> we haven't had that discussion. remember the -- thomas -- when you talk about having armed guards, you talk about arming teachers went have four states in the union where teacher are allowed to have concealed carry weapons but they don't have to tell the parents of their students that they have weapons even

to cnn. i am not kidding you. because the fact is at cnn, he would be a youthful player. at fox cnn to their credit they would pair him with somebody who would disagree with him. at fox, he is just blah, blah, blah. i think they wanted to make sure he didn't go somewhere else? >> roger ailes. >> the president took his wife out to dinner for her 49th birthday last night. he and michelle obama joined by a group of friends at cathfe milano. it's a tradition for the couple to go out. last year they dined at blt stakes. this is a little bit of a further drive. >> i could have recommended 10 restaurants they go to. cafe milano would not have been on the list. >> they have pretty good taste. they pick good spots. >> delicious spots of the. the first was blue duck tavern. >> that's one of my favorites. >> washingtonian magazine has presidential sites and says this is a relatively young couple in washington d.c. they go out. >> they do. a bugger place right down the street called "good stuff" which is great where they have been and a little bit breakfast plac

is fairly prominent conservative commentator at cnn, i believe one of the founders writes over at red state he wrote a piece last week saying you know, basically, let's drop this phony outrage thing. he did mention fox but it was obvious -- he was talking about outrage pimps on the left and the right. the entire column are about what he claims are these conservative town cryers on the right. he makes very good points. it does nothing to build the movement. it doesn't get anyone elected. it turns people off. it's awful to listen to. and -- >> john: do you really think it doesn't get anyone elected? couldn't you say the reason why the republicans did as well as they did in 2010 was that outrage machine got people organized and noblized? >> i think it's different now. i think that was erickson's point was in 2010, we did something. we got out o there. we knocked on doors. we held rallies. we created this movement, yes it imploded. but we created this thing where if now, all of the grassroots, all of the action is gone and all that's left is this just sort of phony outrage. i can't believe fill
